Yup it is heavy. Don't forget it is a monster ya - 20 inch screen!

The Dragon is not meant to be a portable notebook that you can carry around.

It is a desktop and home entertainment replacement machine.

I carry mine around.
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK
No, really, I was at Ihop
the other day. Ihop'd on their free wi-fi and played
WOW for awhile and also watched a BluRay movie.
Sunlight. If you think hd
looks good on a big hd tv
imagine how tight it looks on a 20.1 inch screen. Like a frigging photograph!
I have cargo pants with two
extra batteries one in the big lower pockets of each leg. If you have a dragon, ya really need to get at least one extra battery, trust me. Can't get any music to play out of the jacks in the back except the front L and R. If any of you are blessed enough to own a dragon Heh Heh and you have been able to make quad work; please email and I'll be eternally grateful.
